My apologies for not posting for quite a while. Just had to move from Photoshop to Gimpshop, which meant I had to learn something new. But I digress...
In wedding etiquette, it's been said that it's the bride who should be the only one wearing white, the color of purity and chastity. But what if the bride wants an all-white wedding? As in with everyone in the entourage wearing white?
It's actually possible, but can be quite a challenge since everyone would be wearing the same color -- and that may steal the limelight from the bride. But it can be pulled off, if planned carefully.
If you require your bridesmaids to be wearing white and your gown is also in that color, make sure that the design of your wedding dress would tell everybody that you are the bride. Make your wedding dress a little bit intricate compared to your maids' (but remember not to go overboard on the design and fabric, either). Let the surroundings add the accent to your color motif, such as the leaves of your bouquet, the warm wood hue of the pews, the chrome finish of the chairs in your reception, or even your gold jewelry.
When done right, an all-white wedding exudes of pure elegance. Here's an inspiration board to give you an idea on how to pull off a wedding with white as the color motif:
